About us


Our Story

We graduated massage school together and after drifting apart and seeking out different trainings, found each other again.

With a shared love for what we do and a strong drive to heal our community through therapeutic touch and client education, we open our doors to you!



I came in for left shoulder pain, right hip pain, sciatic pain, and left foot pain. Sarah was very knowledgeable, and tailored the massage to my specific needs. It was very different from other "cookie cutter" massages I have had in the past, that were very basic. I lift weights, and Sarah did some athletic taping, which I have seen done on athletes. It is giving my shoulder and hip extra support, and I will have it done next time I see Sarah. I recommend Sarah and Up North Wellness and Massage to anyone looking for a massage. You couldn't find better massage therapists.

I went to school at the Institute of Natural Therapies. I found a career I love. A career in which anatomy plays a huge role in what I do. It was frustrating at times, failing to get into the programs I thought I wanted, but it was a path that brought me exactly where I am supposed to be. Seven years as a massage therapist and still loving every minute of it!"

Helping people heal and live the best life possible since 1998! 

I am a licensed Massage Therapist with a background in Occupational Therapy. I have been working with human bodies since I was in high school, and I can't imagine doing anything else! Plus, short of being a yoga teacher, what other career can I wear yoga pants to work in?

But seriously, I love what I do and I enjoy getting to know people...their stories and struggles, their hopes and joys. And the best part of my day is knowing that I can help someone to feel better, move pain free, or just smile and laugh a little more!"

Liz has an amazing depth of knowledge when it comes to the human body, and is very skilled at finding and relieving even my most minor discomforts. The atmosphere she creates is very warm and welcoming, and I always leave feeling improved in both body and mind.
